"Pickin' Time"

I got cotton in the bottom land it's up and growin' and I got a good stand

My good wife and them kids of mine gonna get new shoes come pickin' time

Get new shoes come pickin' time

Every night when I go to bed I thank the Lord that my kids are fed

They live on beans eight days in nine but I get 'em fat come pickin' time

Got 'em fat come pickin' time

The corn is yellow and my beans're high the sun is hot in the summer sky

The work is hard till layin' by layin' by till pickin' time layin' by till pickin' time

It's hard to see by the coaloil light and I took it off pretty early at night

Cause a jug of coaloil costs a dime but I stay up late come pickin' time

Stay up late come pickin' time

My old wagon barely gets me to town I patched the wheels and I watered 'em down

Keep her in shape so she'll be fine to haul my cotton come pickin' time

Haul my cotton come pickin' time

Last Sunday morning when they passed the hat

It was still nearly empty back where I sat

But the preacher smiled and said that's fine the Lord'll wait till pickin' time

The Lord'll wait till pickin' time
